Dead Can Dance – Dionysus
Dead Can Dance is an Australian music duo from Melbourne. Currently composed of Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, the group formed in 1981 and relocated to London the following year. Australian music historian Ian McFarlane described Dead Can Dance’s style as “constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty; African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern music, mantras, and art rock.” Dionysus is their ninth studio album, officially released on 2 November 2018. Dionysus is the ancient Greek god of wine and religious ecstasy, and Pitchfork’s review perfectly describes it as “…music of grandeur and grand humanity”.
